In Love With This Blog

Bad Data, Bad! It's barely started, and already I'm in love with it. Mission Statement. Got it from Assistant Village Idiot, another great blog.

MOM,

"Numbers never lie."

The average employment report over the last decade has some pretty low lyin' numbers in it.

My bad. I seem to be using the wrong definition of lie, lol. Sigh.

In all seriousness, that's a good start to any mission statement.
 
Oh hey, that's me!

Thanks!

And I do get quite a kick out of the Assistant Village Idiot's blog. Kind of him to point to me.

Anything I can do to keep the love coming, let me know...obviously since I just started I'm always looking for topics!
 
I've found when I crunch numbers management will just ignore them if they tell them something they might be uncomfortable with.

I mostly crunch numbers in an attempt to avoid working on stupid stuff. Once in a while, if I can attach BIG dollar amounts to my "work" estimates I can get management to actually talk to their workers instead of actively avoid talking to their people.

I wind up not getting an expensive project, but I feel satisfied not having spent any more time on a project that doesn't need doing. But 98% of people are motivated by a combination of greed, ego, an fear. If you took all the unnecessary work out of the economy, the unemployment rate would probably be over 50%. Idle hands are the devil's workshop, so maybe unnecessary work isn't all bad.
